What is a wood burning stove pipe? The stove pipe or flue is an essential part of the house. Formerly built of stone, brick, and cement and often integrated into the walls of the house, the flues are now made of stainless steel. This material is better suited to the evolution of heating appliances and modern construction methods. In general, the flue system consists of a connection duct, an insulated flue and a roof outlet.
The main function of the stove pipe is the evacuation of combustion products from a generator or heating appliance. This device can run on wood, gas, oil and possibly coal (this fuel is only used in countries rich in coal and emerging countries). The fumes are generally very hot but can also be at temperatures below 100 ° C in the case of condensing boilers.
The stove pipe ensures your safety while ensuring the performance of your heater. It is therefore involved in controlling your energy consumption and reducing pollutant emissions. The flue also allows the free choice of energy by adapting to both a gas boiler and a wood stove. The presence of a duct in your home allows you to change energy and opt for the most competitive.
